I didn't manage to make out what should be on this one. A double ended sword or a double headed bird or something else  ???
Not comfortable with the mint either...

Thank you for the mint, Saro.
Peter, I must admit that I have problems to recognize a pomegranate there.

Added a visual aid. Was going to do it yesterday, but grandchildren interfered. :) Maybe now something can be said about the rest of the design?
